Q: In 10 years, will it be possible to find work in China if you don't speak Chinese?

Will it be like if any foreigner today were to arrive in the US to find a job not speaking a word of English?

People will still be able to find work. Many foreigners don't really come here to teach that's why there is a shortage of foreign teachers here and that's why they are always looking for new teachers. Picking up the basic language can be easy it shouldn't take that long to learn unless your a slow learner.

Actually, this shows how little you know about life in the United States, which is a nation of immigrants. There are many, many people who don't speak English, and they get jobs all the time. They come from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South America, and Africa. You think that everyone who gets off a plane or boat in America knows the language?

They find jobs in the thousands of ethnic communities you will encounter in every city across America. With just a small amount of language skills, they are able to get jobs in the service and retail industries. Those who go on to aquire a conversational knowledge of the language are able to work in low and mid management positions, and those who master English move on to professional (academic, medical, and scientific) and governmental positions.

And guess what, they are not condescended for merely being foreign! What a novel concept.

So, essentially, your question is built on a faulty assumption, and thinly disguised nationalism. In ten years, things in China will be the same.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
